A Very Special Trip

We went on a very special trip yesterday to visit one of my favourite Norfolk Artists – Lucy Loveheart – who was holding an open studio where she creates her fantastical paintings.

Mr Hippy and I had a good look round – I was trying to convince him that we needed to commission Lucy to do a picture of our house – but this was a little beyond our budget for the time being!  Instead we bought a beautiful print of one of my favourite paintings of hers – Chips by the Sea – which is of Wells Next The Sea on the North Norfolk coast and a stones throw from where we live.

I couldn’t leave without some scrumptious Christmas cards and postcards which were a bargain and a good look around her creative space which was very inspiring.  If you are not familiar with Lucy’s work, check out her website for lots more images and details – I’m sure you will become as much of a fan as I am once you see her style!

It’s difficult to see from the photos but she uses a lot of glitter in her paintings which makes them stand out and compliments her childish style.  I think she’s fab!  What do you think?
